Massage Parlor of Death

★½☆☆ – (2015) – A masseuse kills her patrons in the name of voodoo and resurrection. A 61-minute mess that barely has a story and is highlighted by some of the worst gore (spaghetti sauce) ever filmed. There are some amusements throughout, and every actor seems in on the joke, but it’s hard to consider this an actual movie.

Cryptz

★★☆☆ – (2002) – Three friends are forced into a strip club housed by vampires. Does the best it can with a dirt cheap budget, though the standard plot only leads to an okay-at-best time. Gets by on likable characters and a few horror moments worth noting.

Victor Crowley

★★★☆ – (2017) – The survivor of Hatchet III is trapped in a downed plane with those looking to bank on the legend of Victor Crowley. Despite a few lags, this has a ton of great jokes, awesome kills, and an overall sense of fun. Doesn’t reinvent the genre, but shows how to breathe new life into a fourth entry.

Erotic Nights of the Living Dead

★½☆☆ – (1980) – A mysterious woman, a black cat, and the undead make trouble for people who are often naked. Doesn’t have much a plot to talk about, as this is more concerned with occasional sex scenes, some of which are hardcore. Don’t get excited, though, those scenes are as bland as everything else.

Alabama’s Ghost

Alabama's Ghost

★½☆☆ – (1973) – An average man who discovers a famous magician’s cloak becomes a famous magician. The plot to get things going is bad enough, but too many other aspects are thrown in to render this a conglomeration of bad scenes that form one nonsensical concoction. A complete mess that disappeared for a reason.

Satan War

Satan War

★☆☆☆ -(1979) – A married couple moves into a house that inverts crosses and spews gook. Begins with an overlong satanic ritual that paves the way for the sheer boredom that follows. There’s hardly any dialog, barely any movement, and not one inkling of suspense. For some reason ends with a voodoo ritual.

Scream Blacula Scream

Scream Blacula Scream

★★½☆ – (1973) – A ritual resurrects a vampire who brings down trouble on a voodoo cult. The police involvements show just how corny vampire lore can be, but the drama is played straight and makes the most of its slim premise. Slows considerably in the third act, but is usually enjoyable.

White Zombie

White Zombie

★★½☆ – (1932) – A couple travels to Haiti to become married, but an owner of undead slaves wants the woman for himself. Aside from expectedly lame dialog and unfortunate racism, this is a pretty creepy story that’s far ahead of its time. Dark, moody, and mostly effective.

The Plague of the Zombies

Plague of the Zombies, The

★★½☆ – (1966) – A doctor investigates voodoo related incidents that cause the dead to rise. Steadily builds an involving mystery through minimal horror and witty dialog. Hard to judge since the genre took the zombie notion to more exciting heights, but even for the atmosphere alone this is commendable.

The Tale of the Voodoo Prostitute

Tale of the Voodoo Prostitute, The

★½☆☆ – (2012) – Hookers kill others and themselves in the name of a depraved pimp. Has something to do with voodoo, but is mostly a wannabe crime flick where the gangsters are impossible to take seriously. Mostly well made, but the inclusions of demonism don’t add up to anything.
